PICTURE: Upward dads! This was absolutely hilarious!!!! Each player and cheerleader had to take off their shoes and untie them. The shoes were piled in the middle of the gym with the dads and grandpas circled around them (backs to the shoes). The task: find your kid's shoes, put them on your kid, tie them, and make a basket. It was hilarious and a great time. I had tears from laughing so hard. This is one of MANY reasons that I love being part of Upward.
READING: Numbers 11-13. Verse 11:23 says, "The LORD answered Moses, 'Is the LORD'S arm too short? You will now see whether or not what I say will come true for you.'" This goes right along with chapter 13. God has PROMISED the Israelites a land "flowing with milk and honey" and they have seen this land with their own eyes. But, because there are scary things there that they hadn't imagine, they lie about the land. They question the power of God! How often we, as believers, do this - we question what God has placed before us because it doesn't look like we thought it should! God's not like us. He keeps His promises and sees more than we do.
